putting the art back in fashion

Mccartney_koons >> As high-end/low-end collaborations like Christopher Kane for Topshop are becoming more and more de rigueur, the whole of fashion seems to be moving away from the art and towards the commercial.  Enter Jefferson Hack and his Another Magazine.  For the past two years, at Hack's request, 15 designers have been collaborating with artists of their choice on a unique design, featured in Another Magazine's spring 2007 issue.   Stella McCartney worked with Jeff Koons on a Bailey_morris_1dress that ended up costing $250,000 to manufacture. 

Christopher Bailey and Annie Morris produced a dress that was half Burberry trench, half flowing train of 25,000 hand-painted clothes pins.  Due to the participant's busy schedules, "Some pieces had to travel back and forth between the artist and designer," Hack told WWD
    The final products are all beautiful, but best final presentation goes to Martin Margiela and Gotscho, with the dress eerily hanging from a mannequin and tethered down by a pair of red pumps.
